This September, Spanish-built 64.85m/212.8ft luxury yacht ADIX will enter the refit facility at The Yard Brisbane (TYB) for a four-month update and her Lloyd’s survey.
Constructed in 1982, this iconic three-masted schooner has naval architecture from Arthur Holgate and Dykstra Naval Architects and has long chosen British shipyard Pendennis as its refit facility of choice. However as she will be cruising in the South Pacific ahead of the America’s Cup in 2021, her Owners desired an outfitter in the region and chose TYB for its excellent reputation and extensive infrastructure comparable to Northern European shipyards.
S/Y ADIX Captain Paul Goss said of the southern hemisphere shipyard:
“We chose The Yard Brisbane as we needed a facility that could provide us with both superyacht expertise and the space and freedom to conduct our work. Some yards don’t like the crew to come to the yard, but TYB welcomed our involvement and that was very important to us.
“An important consideration for us is the area that can be allocated to a project, as ADIX occupies a lot of space when you lay the three rigs on the ground – the sum of ADIX’s spars laid end to end is over 220-metres – so The Yard Brisbane’s spacious facilities, particularly their refit sheds, were excellent in that respect.”
In the past 18 months TYB has also received notable private and for-charter superyachts, including:
- M/Y BIG FISH (45m/147.6ft)
- M/Y GLAZE (49.07m/160.9ft)
- M/Y TRIPE (43.4m/142.4ft)

- S/Y ENCORE (44m/144ft)
- S/Y HETAIROS (66.7m/218.8ft)
- S/Y SKADE (46m/150.9ft)
- S/Y SEA EAGLE (43m/141ft)
